The Cubist artists loved to celebrate the good things in life, so in this homage to Picasso and Braque I've brought together two favourite Cubist themes – music, and wine!
I've picked bright prints and batiks to create a joyful mood for my still-life: a table holds a bowl and a bottle, and in the background I've put a guitar, plus musical notation. Everything needed to enjoy a lazy summer day …
I used fabric fusing to appliqué the raw-edged shapes, then quilted across the whole design by machine in a random criss-cross pattern. The quilting is worked in a variegated thread which picks up the bright colours of the fabric patches.
Finally, two edges are bound in pink and two in dark blue-green, to give the impression of a frame around the 'masterpiece'!
A hidden casing at the top back will hold your own batten/hanging pole.
The quilt will be sent to you cushioned with reusable bubble-wrap, and packed into a large recyclable jiffy bag. Hanging pole and fixings are not included.
Size: c24in (62cm) square
The Cubists very much developed the idea of collage, incorporating all kinds of things into their paintings – for instance bus tickets, and bits torn from newspaper and journals. I think that they would have really appreciated my method of building up a quilt design with fabric fusing! I love the way that Cubist motifs are recognisable, but just slightly shifted out of true, so that's the effect I've tried to capture here.
This panel is part of my Great Artists Collection; other artists I've celebrated in fabric include Monet, Van Gogh and Renoir.
